The Tooth of Crime will rehearse in June and will play July 12-21.  6 shows,  Friday thru Sunday for two weeks. 

The Tooth of Crime is a Rock ‘n’ Roll tragedy written in hipster poetry by Sam Shepard and featuring a LIVE rock band.  The protagonist in The Tooth of Crime is named Hoss;  his rival and nemesis is named Crow. 

Please note:  three of the major roles in The Tooth of Crime, those of Hoss, Crow and BeckyLou, have been pre-cast. Remaining roles are strong, eccentric supporting roles. Four of the five supporting roles will be required to sing one song, a quartet-type ballad somewhat reminiscent of the old 1950s doo-wop songs.  At the audition, actors will be asked to sing one song, backed on this occasion by karaoke equipment.
